Looking for Law in All the Wrong Places: Medieval Legal History and the Problem of Sources. A panel discussion on what it means to study ‘medieval law’ as a secular and religious phenomenon, what counts as a 'legal document', and how apparently 'non-legal' sources can deepen our understanding of medieval legal thought and practice. Featuring Piotr Górecki (University of California Riverside), Elizabeth Papp Kamali (Harvard Law School), Intisar Rabb (Harvard Law School), and Daniel Lord Smail (Harvard University). Preceded by the Fall welcome reception of the Committee on Medieval Studies.
